Holiday DIY Project: Glass Ornaments

With the holidays fast approaching, you might want to consider making some fun DIY ornaments! Create something new with glass ornaments. Their blank canvas encourages creativity and uniqueness in children and adults alike.

Check out these DIY glass ornament ideas:

Glitter Dust

Sparkly and eye-catching, this ornament is festive and ready for a party! Not only is it pretty, but it's also is one of the simplest ornaments to make. All you need is an empty glass ball ornament, a matching ribbon to attach, and your choice of glitter/confetti dust.

Marshmallow Snowman  

Kids will love this craft, as it’s cute for the winter weather and involves marshmallows! Fill an empty glass ball ornament with miniature marshmallows, and complete the snowman’s face by drawing on a carrot nose. This ornament will have you wishing for some snow on Christmas morning!

Nature Bliss

For a more mature design, this greenery-filled ornament will add an elegant touch to your Christmas tree. Filling it with artificial moss, a small pinecone and an evergreen leaf will leave your home feeling cozy.

The “Grinch”

Who doesn’t love watching a classic Christmas movie during the holidays? There are many animated characters that will work for this craft, but the Grinch is one of the best. You can’t go wrong with green glittery face and a head full of feathers!

Back to the Beach

For many, a beach vacation sounds perfect in the cold of winter! Fill the glass ball with sand and add a few seashells. If you plan ahead, you could fill your ornament with sand from your next beach vacation! Your “life is better at the beach” ornament will bring your home-away-from-home a little bit closer.
